This Delicate Thing We've Made
Everyone knows who Darren Hayes is, or for that matter who Savage Garden were. Hence, I'll skip the prelude.
His journey into electronica was marked by his second album The Tension And The Spark. It did create a lot of tension and a lot of spark between him and his label Columbia/Sony. This eventually led him to publish his new, ambitious double disc album on his own independent label, Powdered Sugar.
In short, this album is terrific at many levels and will surprise everyone. The album is a nice blend of pure pop and 80s style electronica. In emotional content, it is far more varied than the darker and pessimistic predecessor, The Tension And The Spark. The production is really superb and one can imagine the amount of work that Justin Shave had put into this album to make it sound contemporary as well as retain its 80s feel and texture (mostly generated by a Fairlight CMI).
